Meigs Sheriff | Agents make record crystal methamphetamine seizure
MEIGS COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) – The Sheriff of Meigs County, Ohio says agents with the Major Crimes Task Force have made one of the largest seizures of crystal methamphetamine in county history.
Agents with the task force began receiving information regarding the prospective delivery of a large quantity of crystal methamphetamine from Dayton, Ohio to the Tuppers Plains area of Meigs County, Ohio.
The suspect vehicle was observed at approximately 8:00PM in the area of State Route 7 in Tuppers Plains.
The suspect who was identified as Caleb Wilson, 33, of Huber Heights, Ohio made a delivery of approximately one (1) pound of crystal methamphetamine to a residence in Tuppers Plains, Ohio.
Task Force Agents simultaneously recovered the drugs and took Caleb Wilson into custody for Possession of Methamphetamine and Trafficking in Methamphetamine, both felonies of the first degree.
Due to the amount of drugs Caleb Wilson is accused of trafficking, his charges classify him as a major drug offender in the State of Ohio.
He is currently being housed at the Middleport Jail awaiting his arraignment in Meigs County Court. The Meigs County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the arrest of Caleb Wilson in this case.
Meigs County Prosecutor James K. Stanley stated that “The Task Force has taken another dealer and a large amount of drugs off Meigs County streets, and our community is better and safer because of their tireless efforts in cases like this.”
Meigs County Sheriff Keith Wood added “Agents worked long hours for several days leading up to this bust. Hopefully the next person who is thinking about bringing drugs into our county will think twice after seeing a case like this. I would like to congratulate all involved for a job well done.”
